Below, an interesting agenda item from the now ongoing PLAC annual meeting:

“10:00 am – 10:30 am:  The Trend Toward Monster Verdicts—What Is Happening and What To Do About It

Eight and nine figure verdicts are coming down with increasing frequency. If the trend continues, it will dramatically change the product liability landscape. We will discuss what is happening, why it is happening, what the plaintiffs are doing to perpetuate the trend and what we can do to stop it.
